Much to the confusion of Californians on Friday, a rare, small tornado touched down in Los Angeles, tearing through parts of rooftops and felling several trees. The National Weather Service classified the tornado as an EF-0, the smallest type of tornado, with winds reaching 65 to 85 miles per hour. “It got a lot of people excited, but thank goodness nobody was hurt,” Stuart Seto of the National Weather Service told USA Today. The tornado reportedly touched a 10-block span in South Los Angeles and damaged at least five homes. Southern California was pelted with heavy rain and strong winds on Friday, triggering flash floods and mudslides, burying homes and cutting off electricity to tens of thousands.
